If you’re an active woman, then you know that having a good sports bra is essential for a successful workout. But how much are you willing to spend for one?

Will a cheap $20 sports bra do the trick or should you splurge and get something more expensive? Let’s take a look at some of the factors that come into play when it comes to buying a good sports bra.

The Price Range

When it comes to sports bras, there is quite a range in price. You can find something as low as $10 all the way up to $100 or more depending on the brand and design.

Sometimes the brand of the bra will dictate the price tag. Also, the design of the bra, all the way from a sexy sports bra to a plain white one, can and will fluctuate the price as well. In other words, what are you willing to spend for what you are getting in return? That is the big question every brand tries to answer before they set the price on what the will offer to the general public.

So what should you be looking for when trying to determine if it is worth spending more money?


This is probably the most important factor when deciding which sports bra to buy. A good sports bra needs to be supportive enough that it won’t move around too much during your workout and cause discomfort or chafing.

Look for bras with adjustable straps and/or cups so that you can customize the fit. The more adjustable options, the better! Also consider if you need extra support in areas like your back or shoulders. There are some bras designed specifically with additional support in these areas.


The material of your sports bra will also make an impact on how comfortable it is while working out. Look for something breathable and lightweight so that your skin can still breathe even during intense workouts.

Cotton blends are usually best because they are soft, durable, and moisture-wicking so that sweat won't get trapped against your skin causing irritation.


No matter what your budget is, there are plenty of great options out there when it comes to finding a good sports bra. As long as you make sure it offers enough support and is made from quality materials, then you should be able to find something within your price range that works well for your needs.

Don’t forget about sizing either; getting the right fit is key for comfort and performance during exercise.
